US Stock Futures: HOT STOCKS TO WATCH

Among the companies whose shares are expected to actively trade in Wednesday's session are Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN), F5 Networks Inc. (FFIV) and Panera Bread Co. (PNRA). Amazon.com's third-quarter earnings plunged 73% because of its expensive spending program, as the No. 1 Internet retailer by sales said it could report an operating loss in the key fourth quarter. Shares slid 12% to $198.89 after hours. F5 Networks reported a 40% jump in fiscal fourth-quarter profit as the Internet traffic service provider said it booked solid year-over-year gains across all regions and strong product sales. Shares shot up 8% to $95.85 in after-hours trade as core earnings and revenue easily topped the company's own forecasts. Panera's third-quarter earnings rose 27% as the bakery-cafe chain continued to report higher sales and better operating margin. Shares were up 10% at $127.58 after hours as earnings, revenue and same-store sales growth all beat projections. Broadcom Corp.'s (BRCM) third-quarter earnings fell 21% as a series of one-time charges masked a better-than-expected core profit driven by broad-based revenue growth. Shares still fell 4.9% to $34.03 after hours as the chip maker issued a dim revenue forecast of $1.7 billion to $1.8 billion for the fourth quarter. Nabors Industries Ltd. (NBR) reported Tuesday it swung to a stronger-than-expected third-quarter profit absent a costly prior-year acquisition as the oilfield-services company continued to generate higher revenue from its U.S. drilling operations. Shares rose 4.1% to $16.45 in after-hours trading. DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc.'s (DWA) third-quarter earnings shares fell 51% as the computer-animation studio reported a decline in revenue, as year-ago results were boosted by "Shrek Forever After." Shares were off 2% at $17.94 in recent after-hours trading Tuesday as revenue missed analyst expectations. Express Scripts Inc.'s (ESRX) third-quarter earnings rose 7.7% as the pharmacy-benefit manager posted stronger sales and margins. Shares climbed 3.3% to $39.75 in late trading. Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. (CBI) third-quarter earnings jumped 39% as the engineering and construction company posted surging growth on its top line, though margins weakened. Shares were up 4.9%, at $36.14 after hours. Manitowoc Co.'s (MTW) third-quarter profit surged as the company posted double-digit revenue growth led by strong sales in its crane segment. Shares were up 5.2% at $9.10 in after-hours trading as results topped Wall Street expectations. Questcor Pharmaceuticals Inc. (QCOR) reported Tuesday its third-quarter profit jumped 98% on higher shipments of its multiple-sclerosis treatment. Shares were up 13% at $37.75 after hours. Human Genome Sciences Inc.'s (HGSI) third-quarter loss widened sharply as the company reported lower revenue, sending shares down 12% to $11.20 after hours on the worse-than-expected results. Medical-device maker C.R. Bard Inc. (BCR) reported its third-quarter earnings edged up 2% as the company reported broad revenue growth, though margins narrowed. Shares were up 0.9% to $88.47 in after-hours trading. Watch List: Ace Ltd. (ACE) swung to a loss in the third quarter amid a steep increase in net realized losses, though the insurer booked better-than-expected operating earnings and higher net premiums written. Boston Properties Inc. (BXP) reported Tuesday its third-quarter earnings jumped a stronger-than-expected 22% as a key measure of profitability improved, though the REIT gave a weak outlook. Cabot Corp.'s (CBT) fiscal fourth-quarter profit rose 40% as the company's core carbon black segment continued to generate more revenue. Chemed Corp.'s (CHE) third-quarter profit rose 4.3% on revenue growth in both its hospice-care and plumbing businesses. Crown Castle International Corp. (CCI) swung to a third-quarter profit as revenue exceeded analyst expectations and prior-year results were hit by over $100 million in losses on interest rate swaps. Nutritional-products retailer GNC Holdings Inc. (GNC) said its secondary public offering of 20 million shares priced at a 1.4% discount to Tuesday's closing price. International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) tapped company executive Virginia M. Rometty as its new president and chief executive, electing a company insider who was long seen as a front-runner to succeed current chairman and CEO Samuel J. Palmisano. JDS Uniphase Corp. (JDSU) said it is "closely monitoring" the situation in Thailand after partner Fabrinet (FN) suspended operations at its Pinehurst campus in waterlogged Thailand but noted flood waters haven't breached Fabrinet's Pinehurst campus, where a portion of the broadband-products maker's communication and commercial optical products are manufactured. OCZ Technology Group Inc. (OCZ) on Tuesday adopted a shareholder rights plan that would dilute the company's stock if a single shareholder trips a 20% trigger. RadioShack Corp. (RSH) reported Tuesday its third-quarter earnings plunged 99% on charges tied to clearing out T-Mobile inventory and closing a manufacturing plant in China as the consumer-electronics retailer's expenses also surged, masking a slight rise in revenue. Range Resources Corp. (RRC) swung to a third-quarter profit as the independent natural oil and gas company reported higher production and higher prices. Robert Half International Inc.'s (RHI) third-quarter profit more than doubled, led by strength in the technology staffing division, and as revenue and margins improved. The results beat Street expectations. Total System Services Inc.'s (TSS) third-quarter earnings rose 27% as the company continued to benefit from strong international revenue growth, while its North American business also improved. -Edited by Corrie Driebusch amd Caitlin Nish; write to corrie.driebusch@dowjones.com and caitlin.nish@dowjones.com
